Occupy Wall Street Protesters March on Police Headquarters
Hundreds of the Occupy Wall Street protesters marched to 1 Police Plaza in New York Friday evening—the largest crowd so far in the days-long demonstration that has centered on everything from financial greed to the Afghan War. The march to police headquarters, located about a half mile from the downtown park where the protesters have gathered, kicked off around 5:30 p.m. as demonstrators yelled, “End the war!” and “Tax the rich!” before settling down in silence when they arrived at 1 Police Plaza and camping out. The demonstration grew in size after 80 people were arrested last Saturday and video surfaced online of police using pepper spray on the protesters. There were even rumors Friday that the band Radiohead would perform, although those rumors were shot down by the evening.
